Places of Worship

The Fresno County Department of Public Health supports Faith-Based Organizations to resume in-person services in accordance with the guidelines released by the California Department of Public Health issued on May 25, 2020.  As the State of California, along with the County of Fresno, continues to modify the stay-at-home orders, the threat of COVID-19 persists in our community.  Therefore, it is essential that we take the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the public.  We recommend that all Faith-Based Organizations and those preparing to resume in-person services review and thoroughly implement the CDPH Guidelines.

  2. If located in the City of Fresno, the business is required to meet the requirements listed in Appendix A.
  3. Provide feedback about following the above-mentioned protocols and list your company’s commitment by filling out the commitment survey.
